CUSTOMER/MANUFACTURER PARTNERING FOR ULTIMATE TRACTION POWER SYSTEM DESIGN

This paper will focus on the aspects of designing and constructing a traction power system through the utilization of designer/customer/manufacturer partnering. The traditional process of contracting defines lines between the customer and manufacturer, subsequently, the customer does not always get the intended product. The paper outlines the process used; examines the uniqueness of the relationships developed between the designer, transit agent and manufacturer; provides a synopsis of what went right and wrong; outlines the importance of how a good relationship between all parties can affect the process; leads to success; and demonstrates how success of this process was achieved.
